Upload Speeds/Seeding


Recommended Posts

Hi! I just created my first few torrents, what are some ways I can make my uploading speed most efficient?

*I'm not downloading anything

*I'm not connected to a router

When I did my speed tests my average speeds were

Upload 275 kb/s

Download 3500 kb/s

U torrent usually only seeds 1-2 torrents at a time with an average speed of 5.0 kb/s.

That just seems REALLY slow, but maybe its because I have a low upload speed. I'm not so sure when it comes to figuring out whats fast and whats crawling.

Any ways to help me seed faster? Also my Upload speed changes depending on time of day between 275 and the 500's. Could this be a factor too? :/

Sorry if I sound dumb, I've been sorta going through this in the trial and error way.

Some Settings I have from reading other topics in the forum.

Global Bandwidth Limiting

Automatic is checked

Number of Connections

Global maximum number of connections: 130

Maximum number of connected peers per torrent: 10

Number of upload slots per torrent: 3

Use additional upload slots if upload speed is <90% checked

Max number of active torrents: 2

Max number of active downloads: 0

Seeding tasks have higher priority than downloading tasks checked

Do you think I need to change any of my settings?

Thanks. :)

Edit: Nevermind. I had given up hope, but somehow overnight it went from between1-5kb/s to between 20-30kb/s uploading. I still don't know what the problem was though.
